I'm a skeptic person, so I admit that I was afraid this would be the standard "happiness" pitch. But what a relief, this book turned out to be truly exceptional. It's straightforward and easy to read.

It's just 18 "simple rules". Some of the suggestions here were totally new to me, the others, I just neglect in my everyday life. No wonder I was not happy but I'm starting to follow the "rules" and feel the effect to me.

I especially like the appendices. I even printed out some of it and hang it to where I can see it often. I particularly like the releasing method, they're simple and effective.

For 99 cents, you can't go wrong. As a bonus, it even offers free audio version (mp3). Some of us hate reading so it is a must. If you spend your time on the road, you should also download it and regularly listen to it.

The 18 Rules for Happiness does more than give you tips on happiness. This is an in-depth, but simple approach to getting True Joy in your life, both short-term and long-term. I was surprised when my sister lent this to me. She told me the price on Kindle and I thought there is no way it has even that much value, but I've been going through a rough patch and she said PLEASE just read a few pages. Well, I did that - and then I read all (it's more than 100 pages! And still I'd take more) - and I wanted to write this review to let you know the JOY I found as well as happpiness using the "18 Rules."

From the start, Karl explains that we can CREATE our happiness, not just be happy in response to others. The first thing I did was stop my whining - and that's what I was doing, feeling sorry for myself - and then I began following the steps, counting my blessings (it is SO easy to look only at our problems - but we have TREMENDOUS opportunities and things to be happy for right now and yes, this applies to virtually everybody reading this review. And once I found my happiness, my joy, I have learned how to multiple it thanks to Karl - I show others happiness! I give it away and it just comes back onto me much more. It's the whole selfish-thing I was going through that KEPT ME - and it was ME, myself who kept me from experiencing happiness. My sister knew what she was doing. And I don't care WHAT your situation is right now, you can change it for the better. Or if not your situation, you can change your RESPONSE to it. And be happy.

Usually books with a beautiful cover are worth buying and this is no exception. The author delivers what he promises and it is a short read. The author's goal is to help you find "genuine happiness."

As a fairly happy person myself I recognized many of the tips and tricks that I've personally used to make myself happy. Like the first rule in this book was helpful to me when I began to get over an awful breakup. But just deciding to stop feeling sorry for myself did not instantly get me out of an emotional quagmire. I had to consciously create my happiness every day until it because natural. Now I live mostly with a warm glow radiating from my chest that feels like love and happiness combined.

I also though the author's advice to release negative emotions was very important. At the end of the book he gives an exact method to do this. I also liked his lovely ideas like driving to the sea or experimenting with cooking. Taking action really does make you happier.

For introverts however the advice on making millions of casual friends might not make them as happy as spending time alone or having just a few close friends.

Some of the advice in this book draws on the wisdom of the power of positive thinking. As the author says: "Nobody likes negativity." I can't count the times I've told people this in my life.

Well I loved this book and I thought it ended at about 69% but there is so much more. At the end of the book there is also an invitation to download an MP3 version of the book. There is also a section of inspirational quotes, lists of good mood music and advice on how to eat feel good foods.

Really this book is about taking care of yourself. I will tell you one thing this works.

In the hectic world in which we live we are often stuck in the proverbial "rat race". We have jobs and contracts to accomplish, agendas to tick off, calendars to follow and we tend to forget what it is all about, what we are seeking. And this is where the beautiful book "The 18 Rules of Happiness" comes into play. It helped me to remember what it is all about, this little known thing called Happiness! While many might say that they know the goal is happiness, few seem to remember that happiness exists only in the moment, it is not a goal to seek, but a state of being! One needs to BE happy, not seek happiness.

The question automatically arises: how to achieve happiness? Karl Moore has done a great job putting together a handy list of the 18 key steps to being and feeling happy. He explores them in great length and full of vital energy. The images simply leap off the page and grab you with powerful imagination. This is not a dry book written for dusty book displays, this is a living, breathing vital exposition of the beauty and power of happiness. Just reading it one already begins to feel happier that there such wonderful people in the world, like the author if this book, who are working to create happiness, and move us all forward in our appreciation of life.

happiness comes from non-seeking
Happiness is a choice which activates a chemical reaction within the body. All emotions are the result of this choice/chemicals and interaction. Decide on happy. It has nothing to do with anything other than you.
